The management of Obafemi Awolowo University has reacted to the shutdown of the school's entrance and principal offices by the Osun state  Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials yesterday over the non-payment of tax to the tune of 1.8 billion Naira.


The Public Relations Officer of the varsity, Abiodun Olanrewaju, earlier today told OAU KILONSHELE about the efforts of the school to resolve the issue.

"We are working on it." He stated

Speaking on further actions by The state government to lock the school, Abiodun assured that the academic activities of the school can not be disrupted as a result of the tax owed.

Moreover, as confirmed by OAU KILONSHELE, registration of freshmen is still in progress and movement of students and vehicles is allowed as the seals placed by IRS has been removed by the school authority.

However, Osun state government has promised not to relent in sanctioning organizations guilty of tax evasion.

In a recent publication, the Special Adviser on tax and Revenue Matters, Barrister Jimoh Olugbenga Akano described the act of evading tax as criminal, saying the state Government will deal decisively with whoever that is found guilty.

It should be recalled that OAU KILONSHELE reported the resumption of 2017/2018 academic session of the university on April 28.
